We stayed here on a group cycling trip. It's a fab place to stay on the edge of Exmoor. Comfortable rooms with powerful showers, just what was needed after a day's cycling. Great breakfasts. A warm welcome from Chris and Sue.

We stumbled across it whilst looking for the Gables; this charming B&B is situated in the heart of the village surrounded by quaint shops, restaurants and bars. This is area of outstanding natural beauty where there are some great walks to explore the surrounding woodlands and dramatic coastlines. The owners are... More

I stayed at Rose Bank for 3 nights with a group of friends whilst on a cycling trip. Whilst the cycling may have been a challenge and tiring the hospitality from Chris and Sue, and overall standard of accommodation certainly aided recovery. I can highly recommend the breakfasts cooked by Sue as a means of preparing for a long cycle... More

This is a very pleasant B&B - a three storey Victorian house in the center of Porlock, with views from one side across the Bristol Channel to South Wales, and from the other to Exmoor. It was good to wake up to clean air and the sound of birds. There is a steep driveway to the side of the building... More

We spent a very pleasant four nights at Rose Bank using the B&B as our base for a walking holiday. After a day’s ‘trek’ Porlock was all we could have wished for with pubs and restaurants within very easy reach of Rose Bank. Importantly there is a dedicated car park behind the house with ample space for all guests. The... More

Since our last visit to Rose Bank, the owners have changed. So it was nice to see that the same high standards were being maintained. My wife and I stayed for 15 nights, so it was essential that we were comfortable and that the breakfasts, room and facilities are of a good standard. Right from the start, the new owners,... More
